Request for future firmwares (RITEK R03 REV01 discs)

Here’s my post that I thought that firmware makers should notice:


That’s true… thanks for the help, I’m just gonna have to wait for newer firmwares that might just enable RITEK R03 (01h) discs to write at 8x.

Or maybe I should post the “media code” of my discs to firmware request pages? I can give this a try, if I’m talking realistically.

Update: Here’s the media code of my discs:

00000000 01 02 00 00 A1 0F 02 00 00 03 00 00 00 26 05 3F …&.?
00000010 00 00 00 00 00 00 03 52 49 54 45 4B 00 00 00 52 …RITEK…R
00000020 30 33 01 38 23 54 37 09 00 3C 65 00 A0 5F 14 14 03.8#T7…
00000030 0A 0A 0A 0A 01 19 1B 0B 0B 0E 0F 01 00 00 00 00 …

Here’s yours:

00000000 01 02 00 00 A1 0F 02 00 00 03 00 00 00 26 05 3F …&.?
00000010 00 00 00 00 00 00 03 52 49 54 45 4B 00 00 00 52 …RITEK…R
00000020 30 33 02 38 23 54 37 09 00 3C 65 00 A0 5F 14 14 03.8#T7…
00000030 0A 0A 0A 0A 01 19 1B 0B 0B 0E 0F 01 00 00 00 00 …

They seem identical, so never mind. =(

Update: They aren’t identical! Look at the third row, the third value’s media code. It’s different.

This concerns the RITEK R03 (revision 1) Media code not being included in the latest firmwares, which enables 8x on these discs I have. Liggy’s beta firmware has 8x support for RITEK R03, but on only the 2nd revision of the disc.

Can someone look further into this issue? Thanks~!
